Police: Shawty Lo’s Death Caused By Single Car Crash, Not Hit-And-Run


(AllHipHop News) Initial reports suggested Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker was killed as a result of a deadly hit-and-run. Fulton County police spokeswoman Cpl. Maureen Smith has now revealed the Atlanta rapper died in a single car crash on Wednesday morning.

“The driver, 40-year-old Carlos Walker, lost control of his vehicle, a 2016 Audi, leaving the roadway and striking a tree, causing the vehicle to overturn and catch fire,” stated Smith, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Apparently, Shawty Lo was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two women were also in the car at the time. Both women were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker is survived by 11 children. The D4L member’s manager Johnnie Cabbell continues to mourn his friend on Instagram.
